Sell your company, but keep developing the deal and making money

For owners of IT companies who have built up their company for many years, everyday life after they reduce working hours or after retirement is a big and important issue. It is common for them to choose to sell all or part of the company but continue to be involved in other ways to secure their future assets. Beachhouse One specializes in matching owners with the right buyers and finding industrial synergies between the two to achieve the best possible results going forward.

The business owner usually does not want to stop working completely but instead chooses to remain in the management or as a board member after the sale of his company. However, this requires finding the right buyer who has the same view of how the company should be run and who can show care for staff and customers. This is motivated by both the buyer and the seller's interest as they do not receive the maximum and long-term value of the company in the event of a sale. If the owners instead work for three to four years and take advantage of business synergies in the new constellation, a higher value is created for both.

Stronger together

Per-Olov Lindgren at the consulting firm Beachhouse one specializes in mergers and acquisitions and finding just the right match between owner and buyer. This is not about cutting costs and saving on staff but instead seeing how the company can become a better supplier to its customers.


- I work with putting together several companies that have their own strength - one can have the customer base while the other has good products/services that can be sold to these customers, says Per-Olov. By merging several companies, they become a stronger player together. This will create profitable growth and the managers can stay and run their business at the same time as the company's identity and the brand they have built up can often survive together.

Create a large IT group

There is a market for a new large IT group that is built up by several companies with SEK 50–200 million in sales each. With a strong financial principal owner and profitable companies in the group, one can be included in a larger context such as:


  • Achieve stability, growth and profitability

    Can compete and win customer agreements with large and public customers

  • Have capital to invest in recruitment, products / services and sales / marketing

  • Can invest and take risks in concepts and new ideas


    Can make acquisitions

  • Increases the value of the companies that are part of the Group

Contact me and I'll come over and discuss strategy and potential. Wherever you are in the process, it is good to have a second opinion. It will be an inspiring hour with a definite return.
